Get in the holiday spirit with your family at Aurora’s first-ever Christkindlmarket! Shop dozens of vendors for food, beverages, mugs, gift boxes, toys, and so much more.
The Christkindlmarket Aurora is the most authentic traditional holiday market of its kind outside of Europe, offering a unique shopping experience, family-friendly events and intercultural activities.
Since 1996, German American Events has hosted the Christkindlmarket Chicago as a free event, featuring international and local vendors with various offerings for all ages. The unique shopping experience, cheerful live entertainment and original food and beverages from Germany make the Christkindlmarket a preferred and popular destination.
This year, we welcome The Christkindlmarket to downtown Aurora at RiverEdge Park, 360 N. Broadway Ave. Entry is free!
